'People' Writer & Two Other Women Accuse Donald Trump of Sexual Assault
Three women have come out with stories of sexual assault by Presidential candidate Donald Trump.
People magazine writer Natasha Stoynoff opens up about her harrowing experience in a new article for the site.
She had been working the Trump beat back in 2005 and interviewing him in Mar-a-Largo for his one-year anniversary with Melania.
“We walked into that room alone, and Trump shut the door behind us,” Natasha wrote. “I turned around, and within seconds, he was pushing me against the wall, and forcing his tongue down my throat.”
She continued, “But, like many women, I was ashamed and blamed myself for his transgression. I minimized it (“It’s not like he raped me…”); I doubted my recollection and my reaction. I was afraid that a famous, powerful, wealthy man could and would discredit and destroy me, especially if I got his coveted PEOPLE feature killed. I just want to forget it ever happened.”
Trump‘s camp told People about the story, “This never happened. There is no merit or veracity to this fictional story.”
Meanwhile, two other women – Jessica Leeds and Rachel Crooks – have also come forward, claiming Trump touched them inappropriately.
“He was like an octopus,” Jessica told the New York Times. “His hands were everywhere…It was an assault.”
